"On Veterans Day, let us pause to reflect on the sacrifices of all of
those who have put on the uniform to serve in the United States
military. Let us honor our veterans, who proved their heroism and love
of country time and again, from Yorktown and Gettysburg to Iwo Jima and
the Persian Gulf.  They consistently defended our ideals across the
globe; and they continue to inspire those who defend America today, half
a world away.  More than a million have died in service to America; and
more than a million and a half have been wounded.  Some sustained
serious injuries in combat and now live with disabilities.  Our Nation
will always be grateful for the noble sacrifices made by these veterans.
We can never adequately repay them.  But we can honor and respect them
for their service."
- GEORGE W. BUSH (an excerpt from his Veterans Day Proclamation, October
30, 2001)
